Keep a Q-tip in your purse for those quick, under-eye touch-ups or smudges. Roll your Q-tip in a bit of hand cream, gently rub and Voilà! You've removed that offending smudge without ruining your make-up.

By placing them between each layer of clothing in your suitcase, they create a small cushion of air which virtually eliminates wrinkles.
